We love holiday weddings in San Diego! We may not have snow but we can celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with the most heartfelt weddings you’ve ever seen!
Christmastime in San Diego! Lily & Greg met in San Diego in 2009 while Lily was in the Air Force. Like many other couples, Lily & Greg had to overcome many struggles in their relationship surrounding family, finances, moves and careers. Through thick and thin, they always kept one thing above all else - their love for each other and Lily's 3 children. After 8 years, Greg decided to propose in front of Lily's 2 sons and daughter while hiking one of their favorite spots, Double Peeks Park in San Marcos. With both Lily & Greg working 2 jobs and living in Arizona, planning their perfect San Diego destination wedding was difficult. They wanted to get married in the city the met (San Diego) during their favorite time of year, Christmas! Lily & Greg planned the perfect holiday themed wedding on a budget! Bridesmaids dresses were purchased from Amazon, decorations were from Michaels & Hobby Lobby and they DIY'd all of their arrangements. To save money, they decided to get married on a week day with the ceremony at Greg's father's church - Faith Lutheran in Vista, CA and the reception at the Thursday Club in La Jolla. We stopped for couples portraits at the iconic Sunset Cliffs in La Jolla. Lilly was walked down the aisle by her 2 sons and she held her passed father close to her in a frame on her bouquet. It was the perfect wedding honoring their families and their love for one another during their favorite time of year.
